Using Canvas To Stage Your Home



https://www.1stdibs.com

Selling your home is stressful. There are lots of papers to keep track of, people to talk to, and at the end, you have to move! But one part of the process can actually be enjoyable, profitable, and even help you with your new home – staging.

Staging your home simply means making it look nice, welcoming, and comfortable to the potential buyers who are looking to buy. Blank walls look less inviting than decorated ones; putting up welcoming art can allow potential homebuyers to envision themselves there. One of the best – and most cost-efficient! – ways of doing that is with canvas art. Canvas art is affordable, totally customizable, and portable, so you can take it to your new home, gift it, or even leave it as a welcome home gift for the new homeowners!

One of the huge appeals of canvas art is it’s so easy to customize. A blank canvas holds a world of possibilities, from famous works of art to art done by children to a special place or quote. Canvas can be customizable for you or to create a fresh, modern, and appealing home for buyers. Children’s art could appeal to homebuyers with children – but without the mess that painting with children can actually entail! - and a welcoming color scheme or some interesting modern art could brighten up and modernize a smaller house. Plus it’s easy to hang without damaging those precious walls!

Canvas art is not only customizable, making it easy to personalize or use to theme a room, it’s also flexible in size. Canvas art can take care of those pesky areas that are too small or too large for standard poster or painting sizes. Prints as small as 8”x8” can provide the perfect little details that stick with a homebuyer, and canvas art as large as 54”x96” can fill a large blank wall and make a ready-to-buy house look more like a home. Canvas art is also gallery quality, which means no frames to buy and easy to hang.

Also, canvas art is fast and easy to order. Instead of searching for the perfect art piece or trying to find a frame to fit a painting, canvas art has a quick turnaround time from design to production to delivery, meaning you can go from “oh no there’s a showing” to “oh yay there’s a showing!” in no time! Even the ordering system is convenient – upload or choose a print and size, as well as options like finishing and hanging, and then you’re ready to order.

Finally, canvas art is very affordable, much less than a similar art piece would be if bought on the art market, especially if you have a large space to fill. With lower prices, you can put more into art for your new house, any surprise closing costs, and maybe even a fun celebration once your house has sold!

But what about your art after you move? As mentioned, canvas art is easy to move and customize. You could easily move your canvas art to your new home – making the cost of new art part of your selling costs – or, if you chose a famous print or local landscape, leave the print for the new homebuyers, maybe with a note and a bottle of wine. Home selling and home buying are stressful, but canvas prints can make for a nice gift or transition to a new home, making the process easier and more enjoyable.

Canvas art is a great way to stage your home to sell. It’s affordable, portable, and customizable – both in image and size – and doesn’t require any difficult hanging or framing to make it look beautiful. It’s also convenient, requiring no knowledge of art or art skills, and quick. With canvas art, and maybe some cookies in the oven, you can be well on your way to selling your home and creating a lasting piece of art.
